Tom Turcich here. April 2nd, 2015 I left my home in New Jersey to embark on a five year trek across the seven continents. The dream of walking around the world formed at seventeen after my friend AnneMarie passed. Since her death I've decided to make the most of each day. I walk the world to become immersed in unknown places and be forced into adventure day after day. In Texas I adopted a dog, Savannah, and we've crossed every border together ever since. I write and take photos, and am hopefully getting better at both with each passing day.


Pics from all over the world!


I eat too many peanut butter sandwiches.

I was filled with adrenaline; drumming my fingers on my knees and trying not to think the way the […]

I'm in eternal gratitude to my sponsors. Their support allows me to live the dream I've had since seventeen. I'll do my best not to squander that and share my experience as best I can.
